STEP 3

Initial Consultation

When we meet, in my PT studio in Bateau Bay, I’ll do a postural assessment which will give me a good indication of how your body holds itself naturally and if there are things we need to strengthen or stretch.

We will also do some movement screening so I can see your natural movements on some of the exercises, which may influence what your fitness program includes. We will also do some body composition testing so we have a baseline to work with and measure success against.

Eye of the Tiger Fitness & Nutrition has rejuvenated my passion and enjoyment towards strength and conditioning. Matt takes extensive care when personalising my training program to ensure it assists me in achieving my goals. His desire to see me develop and strengthen my mind and body has given me the confidence to persist when things get tough. Eye of the Tiger Fitness & Nutrition has enabled me elevate my basketball game as I've never felt so quick, agile and strong when playing on the court!

High recommend Matt! He was able to create an at home/online program for me using equipment and items I had at home and more importantly a program that fits into my busy lifestyle. He provides a great balance between supporting and challenging me to be at my best and get results. Thanks Matt!

Matt has been fantastic! My two children started training with him towards the end of last year. He listened carefully to their goals and designed a program specific to their needs and personal capabilities. Both kids thoroughly enjoyed their weekly training sessions with Matt and could feel themselves improving whilst having fun. He kept them motivated and enthusiastic to strive towards their goals and with his guidance, support and specifically designed training program they were able to successfully end their season with their goals accomplished. Matt has a great way with the kids and his passion for a healthy lifestyle certainly encouraged them to further embrace these same values. He is calm, kind, focused, professional and committed. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone seeking personal training services. Thank you Matt for all your efforts and dedication!

Having my two children train with Matt, the complexity of the sessions was always going to be more than the standard PT sessions, it was two siblings training with completely different stages of ability and confidence. It had the potential to be a disaster. However, as testament to Matt’s professionalism and talent as a PT, I saw two children arrive as siblings and transition into two focused and motivated athletes. Matt structured each session to meet the individual needs and strengths of each child with this resulting in a growth of mindset, athletic ability and confidence within themselves. What a lifelong gift Matt has shared with them!

Highly recommend you check out “Eye of the Tiger“ if your looking for a PT! Matt is very knowledgeable, personable and extremely flexible in accommodating sessions to our busy life. We have 17yr old twins and Matt has been working with both to achieve their individual goals with great success. Both started with the online program during Lockdown originally for fitness and strength, with results only after a few weeks. We now do a combination of online and face to face. As their sporting goals change throughout the season, so do their individual programs. The jump program in particular was one both found very rewarding. They enjoy every session and come away feeling stronger and better about themselves - what parent doesn’t want that!

I started with Matt on a 28 day challenge late last year 2021. I needed to do something to push myself with my martial arts training so I decided to run with a PT so that I could focus on specifics. Matt is a kind, caring and knowledgeable individual. He tailors a programme to suit. He never judges and always encourages to do better. Do yourself a favour and book in with Matt. You won’t be disappointed.

I have been training with Matt since he started his education to start this adventure he loves. Matt always encourages me to push that little bit hard when he knows I can do it. I love my training so much I started my son training with Matt. Matt is not just a trainer is he compassionate and caring person who will do what he can to help you achieve your goals. I can not recommend Matt more to everyone who wants to start their fitness journey.

I needed someone to help get me back on track with my training. Knowing what Matt does and all the training he has done himself, I new he was who I needed. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and professional in his approach to individual programs and his extensive information on his social media platforms is fantastic. You can not put a price on your health. The body you have is the only one you have been given, so don’t just trust it to anyone!

I hadn’t exercised properly for nearly 2 years, when I was recommended Eye of the Tiger by a good friend. Prior to joining I had only used low Weight dumb bells occasionally, this programme has introduced me to the barbell and heavier weights & I love it! Following Eye of the Tiger’s workout routines gives me clear direction & I’m definitely noticing a change in strength of mindset & body

I started training with Matt in around March after a broken wrist had put me out of sport since November. Last week I had a realisation - on Wednesday (my PT day) I had to pick my son up from school unwell. In the past I would have used this as the perfect excuse not to train. But today instead I packed him a lunch box, got a cushion and the picnic rug and set him up in the sun on Matt's driveway. He was happy watching my phone as well as what was going on in the gym and I was so happy that I didn't miss my session. He thought the rowing machine 200s looked like "so much fun". The day before I had a spare 20 mins between an appointment and my sons basketball game so instead of sitting on my phone in the car outside the stadium I drove to the Haven, did a quick 1.5km walk and 1 skillion. Woohooo!!! Moving on from those excuses thanks to Matts support and encouragement!! Highly recommended.

I just want to give a huge shout out to Matt Shorrock! As many of you maybe aware since i stopped playing competitive sport and had 3 beautiful children I have struggled with my weight and motivation to exercise. I also have hypothyroidism that makes me gain weight just by looking at food. I made a drastic decision 2 years ago to have gastric sleeve surgery where I did lose over 40kg. But I did lose my strength and muscle tone. I struggled to even lift groceries. Now just over 2 months of working with Matt at eye of the tiger fitness, I am following a personal training program that is tailored to my goals, tracking my food intake and loving life. I am now lifting weights and can see muscle definition in my arms, legs and booty!! I have gain strength and confidence in my body again. I can not thank Matt and his approach enough, Matt provides a training environment that is all about me, it’s my time to focus on my goals which as a mum doesn’t happen enough. Matt’s approach to my training is encouraging without judgement.

Mat is an accomplished PT. He goes beyond just saying do 3 more. He actually assesses your body type and then adapts the exercises to your body type and goals. What was the most impressive thing was the programme constructed based on body weight exercises only at the start of lockdown. Most PT would have not bothered if you didn’t have any equipment to use.

Since I started training with Matt 3 months ago, I’ve am now stronger and much healthier. Simple things like running with kids on the beach and walking up and down stairs used to bring pain to my knees and left me feeling generally weak and fatigued. Working full time with 4 kids and their after school sports never left any time for my health. Matt tailored by regime to suit my capability and my busy family life. I can honestly say I enjoyed working out from the get go with Matt. 3 months on and I really feel the benefits. My muscles feel stronger, there’s no more pain in my joints and I look forward to my 7am training sessions - words I never thought I would hear myself say! Even with the recent covid-19 impact, bringing self isolation to most, I still get to work out over zoom with Matt. Matt goes above and beyond, to make sure I get the same level of service. I am now lifting 3 days per week, and improving with every session. A huge confidence booster! Highly recommend Eye of The Tiger Fitness’

Since my 11yr old son has started seeing Matt we seen so many positive changes. Not just physically but in mindset as well. He thoroughly enjoys each session and I know that Matt is pushing him to be faster, more agile and stronger. It’s the little touches that differentiates Matt from other trainers, the personal messages of support and encouragement. Teaching my preteen when being a good human is all about.

If a customised approach, motivation and encouragement is what you’re looking for in a PT, I totally recommend Eye of the Tiger Coaching. Having done very little exercise for most of 2019 due to lack of motivation, I knew I had to create new fitness habits but didn’t know where to begin. I started customised one-on-one fitness training sessions twice a week with Eye of the Tiger Coaching and found Matt’s encouragement and personalised approach fantastic; challenging yet achievable and sustainable. Also, he makes it really enjoyable to train, which was an added encouragement (compared to previous PT sessions at gyms when I couldn’t wait for it to be over). Matt’s professionalism, knowledge and passion for fitness is second to none and I’m looking forward to continuing my fitness journey in 2020 thanks to Matt’s support and inspiration.

My son has recently started 1:1 boxing lessons with Matt and I’m already seeing a difference! He is always red- faced, sweaty and beaming when I pick him up and can’t wait for his next session. Very importantly to me - Matt is always so caring and gentle with my sensitive boy 🙂

After doing a few triathlons I wanted to develop a home and gym program. Matt took the time to understand what muscle groups I regularly used and went about building a program. Matt was great in understanding my schedule, goals and most importantly any barriers that I might face. From the first meeting Matt was great in keeping me accountable but also supporting. He adapted my program on the run to ensure I met my goals and regularly checked in. I believe that to achieve things you need to surround yourself with like minded people and if your keen to hit some lifestyle and fitness goals there is no better person then Matt and eye of the Tiger fitness.

Matt is an exceptional personal trainer, mentor and coach. Matt personalises and tailors the training specifically to my individual needs, adjusting accordingly and constantly changing it up. He sends me reminder messages to keep me motivated and to ensure I'm prepared for my sessions. Theres the added bonus of his ability to provide assisted stretching to reduce muscle fatigue and improve flexibility. Matt is one of the most dedicated and committed trainers i've ever used and i cannot recommend Matt highly enough. 😀

Matt was brilliant to work with. He shows you exactly how to do the exercise, and monitors your progress, checking your form all the time. He is driven and pushes you to do your best, and to do more than you think you actually think are capable of. Do yourself a favour and join Matt, you won't be disappointed!

There are lots of options now for health & fitness so it can be a little overwhelming on which direction to take or what will work best for you. Matt takes away the confusion. At a consult he'll put you at ease (no judgement), listen to what you aim to achieve, run you through a few exercises to see how your body moves... the output of this is a program that's made solely with you in mind. With Matt you will have a PT that really knows his stuff and will push you without being pushy! Matt lives his life to the fullest and encourages others to do the same.

My 16 year old was struggling with confidence, fitness and body issues. Matt has tailored a specific training program for my son. He has been given guidance on diet and fitness in ways that a teenager wont listen to anyone else but a third party! Matt has also created a consciousness that wasn’t there before in my son! He is currently doing a 12week training session, we are two weeks in! Can not wait to see how this goes �
